From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The Misty Mountains army was a blend of cave dwelling goblins, the spiders of the forest, and the wargs of the crags. I loved it.
The army above shows a little bit of everything the list had to offer.
Plastic wargs weren’t available when I started this army, so I took Warhammer Fantasy chaos hounds, used snippers and green stuff to remove the chaos bits and replace them with fur, and painted them up.
By the time I got to this army, I was being more ambitious with my basing. Although it would have worked better yet if I had pinned the models in place.
The spiders are great metal models from an independent supplier of the time. For some reason they shipped with double the number of legs I needed. I’ll find a use for those some day.
The characters are a goblin shaman and champion, a spider queen, and a named goblin (whose name I no longer recall) who specialised in summoning spiders or bats. The other half of my Warhammer Quest bats were requisitioned for this force too.
The centrepiece is this stone giant. Again sculpted by a non-GW company, the sculptor is now the ‘flame’ half of Shadow and Flame. The model has lost a hand due to the sheer weight of the metal used, something else I need to pin in place.
I have this wonderful cave drake, a second spider queen, and some more spider swarms still to go here. Plus also another goblin shaman, and a bat swarm that originally came with the named goblin. Coming to a tray near me soon!
Okay, maybe not ‘soon’. But someday!
